You might have a dog who you think will be a super-star on the agility course, but unless you work with him "from the ground up," you may end up being disappointed. Author Kim Collins takes the position that there is a lot of training and relationship building that needs to go on before you ever begin to train the specific skills needed for agility. So this is the perfect book for you if you have a puppy or a young dog and are planning a career in agility in the future as it provides a complete training plan for both his pre-agility work and when he is ready to head out on the course. You will learn: • The relevant basic training methods including luring, prompting, and shaping. • The key concepts needed to provide reinforcements to your dog to get him to do what you want him to do. • Pre-agility obedience behaviors that all agility dogs need to master before moving forward. • All the skills your dog needs to master to succeed in agility including foundation work, flatwork, obstacle training, then testing and proofing.
